tearing down the vault

So… the lovely bride and I bought this building a few months ago on the main street in Vinalhaven. And, in the middle of the building is this former safe/vault. The safe door was long gone, but the 16 inch thick walls (brick) and 1/2 thick steel walls (inside the brick) were still there. Today, we started dismantling the monolith brick by brick by brick by brick by brick by brick by brick by brick by brick by brick by brick…etc.

No corkscrews were found inside the vault…but there are still bricks to go–several thousand of them. Pictures of the vault, the bricks, and the process to follow. Stay tuned.

Until then, I am looking for a pneumatic jack hammer to facilitate the process. Anyone have one to spare?
